Message from Mike Diamond:

Quote:
Yes, this dime was struck on a clad layer that entered the striking chamber by itself. Such errors should weigh around 0.4 grams.

One more question after reading and maybe I'm just reading the wrong things on the "always right internet" lol. Alot of what I'm reading is saying that once it's struck either the reverse or Obverse will be mirrored on he opposite side and this one has both obv/rev strikes. Thanks in advance.

Time to get this to PCGS or NGC! If you have a authorized dealer that can help in submitting to one of these grader, that maybe the quicker way, if not, you can join either one and submitted yourself.

Depending on the strike. On your coin is will be normal as the strike happened on the fragment. It is when the separation happens after the strike. Then the two pieces will show the on side normal and mirrored, and the other part normal on both sides, because of the split off. Most times they would probably remain together, but they could. But on your fragment, both were struck with the dies, so they are normal on both sides.

Thank you for the explanation coop. After reading it, I looked up some videos on how coins are made and now I think I understand it lol.

Well you started off with a great coin. It will be disappointing for a while to top that one.

Josh, I am a Lincoln cent specialist but have been following this thread as from your first images it was clear this was a nice error. Congrats on the find! You now have a quote from Mike Diamond verifying the error and that is pretty much the gold standard, so you know what it is. One of the best finds here from a new member in a while. Great error coin and thank you for posting it.
